decision-making but political reform, social reform and even some foreign policy issues. and we're not going to see until probably well after the congress that kind of sclerosis lifting. it's going to take awhile it will take the new leadership some time to get their feet, as it were. but it's really hobbled the decision-making structure. we had a vacuum at the top of the system. weak leadership, lack of vision, inabilityo move to tackle the economy. not just slowing growth rate and export as broad. it's growing nonperforming loans and bank indebtedness, social inequities. whole series of issues that plague the economy going forward. >> time quick question, there are plenty of other party leaders who live beyond the obvious means of the government official. is that at all risky for them to file these kind of charges against bo? >> absolutely. he is not unique, we say. he is unique in that he was involved in a homicide or the cover-up of a homicide and his own political style is slightly unique but in terms of corruption, he is more representative, i would say, of the entire syst
of his foreign policy. we can't have the truth about his overall failure as a president at anything. >> greta: and the hits keep coming and fast. former new hampshire governor john sununu ratchets it up, saying president obama is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. governor sununu joins us. nice to see you, governor. >> good to be here. how are you? >> greta: very well. very tough words. can you defend them? because that's very biting words. >> sure. look, one of the key responsibilities of a president is to keep up with the intelligence data that's coming in, what's going on around the world. this president has skipped about 60% of his personal contact presidential daily briefings, the pdb. that document he skims on his ipad is a summary. the briefings that come over, the experts that come over to follow in detail what's coming up on, this president thinks he's so smart he doesn't have to go through that. he thinks he doesn't need to put the extra work in for going through that process. that's why i say he's lazy and detached and unfortunately ambassador stevens suffered the
foreign policy, one that people largely agree with. so if governor mitt romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. >>> tonight, hillary clinton is meeting with netanyahu, representing the president. it is still unclear how much of today's talk is aimed to do something talks have not achieved, get iran to negotiate >> all right, how close is iran to the point of no return? there is a big difference between american intelligence and israel's view, the u.s. feels there is at least a year, and no need to take action quickly. israel wants it to be quicker and for the u.s. to be involved. >>> meanwhile, on the campaign trail, the candidates were shadowing each other in a crucial swing state, this time, virginia, chief correspondent chuck todd has more. >> reporter: good evening, savannah, the presidential campaign, of course is focused on nine states where the polls are close. and every year, one state stands out from the rest, in 2000, it was florida, ohio, more and more, it looks like virginia. and that was where both candidates were today. for the president his 13
megyn kelly. this latest twist in the foreign policy scandal came hours after fox news yesterday confirmed that u.s. intelligence knew on day one that terror was behind attacks attacks in libya that took the lives of our ambassador in libya. that contradicts information put out by the white house in the days after the attack, blamed for a protest that got out of hand. now, several democrats have joined republicans on the senate foreign relations committee in a joint letter to the state department. demanding to know what kind of intelligence the state department had prior to the attack. and whether security was adequately trained to protect our mission. our chief intelligence correspondent is live in washington with more. >> thank you, megyn. they sent those bipartisan letter to the deputy secretary of state, requesting about the security posture senator grassley. what they were doing to mitigate the threat and how much the u.s. and libyan governments knew about the growing threat from al qaeda and militias in eastern libya. >> all members of the formulation relations committee, b
. can any of these foreign policy questions and whether or not the administration bungled the response after the attacks, the horrible tragedy in benghazi, or the israeli relationship and whether mitt romney is correct that the administration has thrown israel under the bus, can any of these foreign policy questions come into it or does this have to be under the format strictly domestic policy. >> i think only if chip herrer asks the question. if romney were to launch an attack on libya or launch an attack on the israeli question, he would look like he was trying to score political points in a debate where he's supposed to be talking about the economy. one of the rules i have for the debates you don't fight with the moderator and you don't invade the other person's space. >> a violation of the newt gingrich rule which was to completely go after maria bartiromo and john harwood at the cnbc debate in michigan and make -- make them the target. >> he was looking for right wing base voters who hate the media. i don't think that's the situation here. when you fight with the moderator and som
foreign policy and one that the american people largely agree with. so, you know, if governor romney is suggesting that we should start another war, he should say so. >> that was nbc's andrea mitchell reporting. >>> this morning iran is responding to netanyahu's red line comments saying it reserves the right to retaliate against any attack. meantime, new internal israeli government report finds that international sanctions are, in fact, hurting iran's economy but have not slowed down the nuclear program. the report calls for another round of sanctions to be implemented. >> in the race for the white house, we have got new batch of poll numbers coming out on three more battleground states. according to the new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist college poll, the president has a slim lead over voters in north carolina where the democrats held their national convention earlier this month. obama won the state in 2008 by less than 1%. he also has a two-point advantage in nevada, well within the margin of error and in new hampshire where mitt romney owns a home, obama leads 51% to 44%. in all
is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear, a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes what is ahead and what is willing to be done as a leader. megyn: president obama continues his campaign again today. megyn: off to the critical swing state of virginia. new polls show the race tightening their grip president obama leading governor romney by two points. 46% to 44%. that is within the margin of error. here is the policy average of all polls in virginia. the president of about four points. now some politics watchers are suggesting all of th
would be about the economy. lately foreign policy has also been a priority. now president obama has talked on the phone today with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and we understand that mitt romney just spoke with him by phone moments ago. we got -- first up, of course, jen socky, a traveling press secretary for the obama campaign. jen, first of all, there was some criticism -- >> hi. >> hi. good to see you. >> there was criticism, back and forth, about -- one of our laiss said it was a telanovella, this drama between the president and netanyahu over whether or not they should see each other face-to-face, around the united nations meetings, these kinds of things. they have now spoken. does this put this to rest? >> well, suzanne, they also spoke for about an hour about two weeks ago, and they are in consistent contact, as are members of the president's national security team, and seetary hillary clinton. you know, the president is focused on governing, restoring our place in the world, focussing on what needs to be done in these areas, and mitt romney seems to be focused o
on when dealing with al qaeda specifically and terrorism and foreign policy and this was frankly a disaster for the united states and a terrible tragedy so they see this as a way to criticize some of the president's policies in the region. >> brown: steven lee myers, daniel byman, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: now to our american graduate series on the high school dropout problem. tonight, we explore the pressures on a public school system in a city that's unexpectedly benefiting from economic good times. ray suarez has our story from north dakota. >> reporter: there is no better economic view in the u.s. than the one seen from above williston, north dakota. a rapidly expanding oil boom has taken root below, bringing with it widespread prosperity and an unemployment rate that sits at just 1%. this city's fortunes are in stark contrast to most of the nation. real estate is profitable. blue collar jobs are abundant. and much of the globe, including asia, the middle east and europe, is investing in the local economy. but as opportunities and new residents pour in, it
questions. people need answers. this foreign-policy mass, -- mess, he always watns transparency. host: you're in a swing state. are you seeing a lot of commercials? caller: i go back and forth between denver and the suburbs. when they go out and do the polls, they're finding out that they're asking more democrats and coming back with a 10 point lead. from what i've seen, they're trying to go back to the 2008 turn out. host: that was got from colorado springs. up next in oregon on the democratic line. caller: it's nice to talk to you today. thank you for taking my call. the media tries to interject their opinions into the politics of what's going on today. i do not care whether that is republican or democrat. i think the media has this about their ability to be neutral. one of the examples that i would give is to checked politifact. whenever they give up facts about the president and romney -- did he really do that stuff? then instead of coming back, if obama is not 100% on a point, they will find some way or some small percentage to show that he was not exactly a perfectly right therefore
